Description Max Kalika (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-11-20 14:51:00 UTC
Similar to sun-jdk and setiathome, this ebuild (attached) first requires you 
to download the package and place it into $DISTDIR.  This makes it much easier 
to maintain winex under Gentoo.  Some unresolved issues are what License to 
use and the dependencies.  Currently just copied the run-time deps from the 
gentoo winex ebuild.

whats the advantage of using this ebuild over the current winex ? 
Comment 4 Max Kalika (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-11-20 19:28:47 UTC
this installs a transgaming-supported tarball that has all the stuff that you 
can only get if you have a transgaming subscription (cd protection, etc).

new version of the ebuild

This is a new cleaned up version of the winex-transgaming ebuild.  It will now
check MD5 and use less bash.  Tastes great and less filling.

I can't test it on my box (i'm no winex subscriber because i have no credit 
card) but i will add it shortly.

Changing status to ASSIGNED.

Hey Max!

Adding it as we speak. Sorry for the delay - i took some time off (one month).

Do i see that right, or does it share locations with app-emulation/winex (/usr/bin/winex)?
I'm making winex-transgaming block winex and vice versa. Got a better idea?

new ebuild

Oh hey!  I forgot abou this thing.  Yeah, making it block winex and winex-cvs
is probably a good idea as the winex prebuilt package contains all the paths
hardcoded (methinks).  I'm also attaching a new cleaner ebuild. (I learned some
stuff about portage and ebuilds in the past few months) :-)
Comment 9 phoen][x 2003-02-24 16:55:58 UTC
Committed. Test it please (because i can't).
